Once we take the engine covers of the KrisDel Jet powered horse you'll see that baby go.

After being fitted with the most up-to-date sound system complete with full range "equinizer", Ol' Hoss came to the conclusion that the dude had absolutely no horse sense.

A Horse With No Name

On the first part of the journey,
I was looking at all the life.
There were plants and birds. and rocks and things,
There was sand and hills and rings.
The first thing I met, was a fly with a buzz,
And the sky, with no clouds.
The heat was hot, and the ground was dry,
But the air was full of sound.

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name,
It felt good to be out of the rain.
In the desert you can remember your name,
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain.
La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

................. - Song from the band 'America'.

(brings back my remaining fondest memories of my indiscretional youth).

Actually the sound system was an unnecessary purchase, as farts already have a destinctive smell for the benefit of those who are hard-of-hearing.

Perhaps I should clarify: I was going for the pun:

"Speaker of the Horse"

And has nothing to do with the fact the picture is of a horse's ass, apt or not.
